Victorian Steampunk Evie

Good morning friends!

I'm back with another "Lil Victorian Steampunk" from Tickled Pink Stamps. :)
These cool characters are illustrated by the talented Christina and we also have a great coordinating sentiment set, designed by Ann, to go along with them. All of the new stamps are being released on Saturday, May 7th (Aussie time)... Friday the 6th for those of us in the States, in the Tickled Pink store.

Today we have even more girlie loveliness to share because Evie is here in all of her fabulous vintage glory! Isn't she gorgeous? As I was putting this card together I pulled a lot of inspiration from the die cuts and stickers that I chose to go with Evie. I imagine her as a very prim and proper young lady but in her secret dreams she longs to run away to Paris and live the life of a bohemian artist! That is why I paired her with the cool painter's palette (that I stamped the sentiment onto) and the rest of the doodads as well. :)

As always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without a prize, so head on over to the Tickled Pink blog and leave a comment on today's post for a chance at winning your very own Victorian Steampunk Evie rubber stamp! While you are there be sure to check out all of the lovely Evie cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created! And be sure to mark your calendars for the sale that Kellie is having in the TP store starting on May 7th, which is release day! Buy 3 rubber stamps and get a 4th FREE.... how amazing is that?!

And if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, there is also a brand new sketch challenge now up over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog! I followed it pretty closely with my card today... the only thing I changed was the positioning of the sentiment circle from the left side of the card to the right. So if you would like a chance at winning TWO Tickled Pink rubber stamps of your choice then why not play along? Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Have fun and good luck! :)
